7-2-14 fbi:heroin abuse getting worse in wi

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The FBI says heroin abuse seems to getting worse in Wisconsin as abusers seek a cheaper alternative to prescription pills such as Vicodin and Percocet. Law enforcement officials have seen a spike in heroin usage since about 2008. The FBI says heroin apparently arrives in Wisconsin by way of Minneapolis, Chicago, and Rockford, Illinois. One hit costs $12 to $15 in Milwaukee and about twice that, due to supply and demand, in the Green Bay area.
